Ruling in the case about jurisdiction of administrative courts in land-related matters
On April 1, 2010 the Constitutional Court of Ukraine ruled that local radas when discharging their competence provided for by points "а", "б", "в" and "г" of Article 12 of the Land Code of Ukraine (namely, disposal of municipal land, allocation of municipal land plots into ownership, leasehold and permanent use, withdrawal of land plots from permanent use) act like bodies of public administration.
Therefore all disputes regarding decisions, acts, actions and/or inaction of local radas discharging the said competence shall be adjudicated on by administrative courts and not be courts of general jurisdiction.
The complete text of the ruling is available in Ukrainian only.
